The Wasco High School Physical Education and Sports Complex includes a lighted varsity baseball field, a lighted varsity softball field, an auxiliary softball field, a lighted soccer field, an additional soccer field, and eight lighted tennis courts. Tennis courts are designed with post-tensioned concrete slabs with a three-coat acrylic tennis surface. Batting cages are provided at each baseball and softball field with power for pitching machines. Motion-activated, voice-annunciated crossing signals with in-street flashing lights and flashing signs have been installed at two locations in the street, separating the two parts of the campus. The complex will be used for the high school’s physical education program and its athletic department. It is also anticipated that the community will use the tennis courts and soccer fields for recreational games.
The complex includes a 4,212-square-foot field house for maintenance and equipment storage and a 2,992-square-foot snack bar building that has public restrooms and additional athletic equipment storage capacity. Masonry dugouts at each of the ball fields have storage rooms and public restrooms. On-site parking is provided, and off-site street improvements of the previously undeveloped site on three sides of the complex will provide the neighborhood with new lighted sidewalks, street parking, and improved traffic flow.
Sola-tubes are used in all of the buildings to reduce the lighting load. The sports field irrigation system has been designed to use nonpotable water, provided at no charge to the District by the Shafter-Wasco Irrigation Department, for approximately 10 months out of the year. The system is designed with a flanged adapter that will allow the District to change to potable water from the City of Wasco for the other 2 months. (Excerpt from Entry Form)
